Long Range Antennas for Multiverse and SHoW DMX



Many broadcast problems are overcome by using specialized antennas, either to increase range or to focus radio energy to a specific area. The specialized long range antennas listed on the page are available for different scenarios in a Multiverse or SHoW DMX wireless DMX setup.

    Connectors

This panel antenna is a directional unit with a 60º Beam spread. 

These antennas can be used with a single transmitter in a pair with a splitter to send the radio signal in two different directions (e.g. two sides of a building with the transmitter mounted at the corner).  


The 5981 Panel Antenna antenna can be used for indoor or outdoor projects. 

The 5981 Panel Antenna comes with mounting bracket and attached 6" lead with female "N" connector. To connect to SHoW Baby, Neo Tx or Rx, Multiverse Node, Transmitter, or Gateway requires a 5638 Adapter Cable. To connect to Vero requires a 5641 Adapter Cable. 

The 8dBi Panel is legal in the EU with the use of a splitter. When using high gain antennas be certain that the EIRP of your system is within permissible limits of your local regulatory body. Should you have specific application questions, please contact our engineering department for guidance.

Connectors

This highly directional Yagi antenna has a 35º Beam width. Yagi antennas focus most of their energy forward producing a highly directional, narrow beam.  A good choice for very long range broadcast to fixed targets. 


The 5982 Yagi Antenna comes with mounting bracket and attached 6" lead with female "N" connector. To connect to SHoW Baby, Neo Tx or Rx, Multiverse Node, Tx or Gateway requires a 5638 Adapter Cable. To connect to Vero requires a 5641 Adapter Cable.

The 5982 Yagi Antenna can be used for indoor or outdoor projects.

When using high gain antennas be certain that the EIRP of your system is within permissible limits of your local regulatory body.

Connectors

Connect two antennas to one transmitter.  This decreases the output to each antenna by 50%, but can allow you to broadcast "around corners." 

All three connectors are N-Connector Female.
